Video baby monitors are must-have items for caregivers who want to ensure their little one is safe without intruding on the nursery during naptime or at night.
Many of the latest baby monitors have features that go well beyond basic video and audio feeds, also tracking metrics like temperature, humidity, and more.
When my wife and I were first shopping for baby monitors back in 2013, the choices were limited to various systems that sent rather grainy images and choppy audio from a camera unit to a parent unit.
Today, caregivers can find video baby monitors that track a child's motion and send alerts when sleeping patterns seem disrupted.
